Easter hunt for crucial points for Leeds United

Easter hunt for crucial points for Leeds United

Rafael Benitez's men are eight points ahead of third-placed Huddersfield with four games remaining - the Tykes have one in hand - but are now four points adrift of leaders Brighton, while Leeds have strengthened their grip on a play-off berth.

But as the Sky Sports commentators said, Leeds United did what was most important in the face of the onslaught - they stayed in the game. We have good confidence from the win over Preston and we want to prove what we are capable of in these last five games.

All Whites striker Chris Wood has come up with another important goal for his club Leeds United, in their 1-1 draw with Newcastle United at St James' Park this morning.

Leeds were completely outplayed by the hosts at a sold-out St James' Park, before Wood tucked home Kemar Roofe's cross in the 95th minute.

The north east side will still likely secure automatic promotion, however may find it hard to be crowned champions at the end of this season - something that was expected considering the amount of money spent on the second-tier outfit.

Leeds announced the side on their official Twitter account, as Monk makes just one change to the side that strolled past Preston 3-0 at Elland Road last time out.

The first 10 minutes or so was quit even and Leeds hit the bar and Darlow saved the follow up, then their next shot on target was in the 95th minute. They are going to have to sell to try and get some better players into the team.

"Why did we have a penalty that took seven minutes and we only got three minutes at the end (against Wigan)". I know they're young boys and they're still learning the game but I trust all my players and they showed me a really good response after Tuesday in training.

But this, bar that late lapse, was the best Newcastle have played at home all season. The last time it was three minutes in the first half then we had seven minutes lost on the penalty incident and five minutes at the end when we were winning 2-1.

"I am just so upset there have been so many games I have seen things I don't understand, so logical I start to think about things".

"We will go up with the same attitude as always".
